Some of the things are impossible to come by - you either have an old knackered 1950's suitcase or you dont. There are no patterns in the book (probably because there isn't actually anything to make.) I actually snorted out loud when the author suggests buying some shop bought jam, cut out a circle of fabric, put it over the lid and tie a luggage label round it then 'pretend you made it'! You would have to have a seriously low craft IQ to pull such a dirty trick!
If you're the sort of person who buys pre folded card, press out printed decals and gold sticky labels saying 'happy birthday', and who likes to claim you have made your own cards, you may like this book. However, if you have any shred of creative integrity, give it a miss.
The instructions are woeful... fill your teacups with eggs but no instructions on how to colour or paint the eggs, let alone how to blow them through. The comment about covering a jar of shop bought jam with a remnant of fabric and claiming you had made it... priceless. My absolute fave is sticking china plates to ribbon and hanging them on the wall... even I know that in a fight between glue and gravity, gravity will be the winner and your bone china plate the loser.
In all honesty, this is a pretty coffee table book to look at some well executed pics but this is not a craft book and frankly should not be in the craft section.
Deeply, deeply disappointing... not even worth reserving at the library :(
The instructions are clear, the photography beautiful and the end products are really lovely. I will definitely be trying my hand at making some of these as they would make really great presents for Christmas.
Watch out Kirsty Allsopp here comes Sarah Moore!
Ok, the photographs and style of the book are lovely but i can honestly say there`s nothing in it thats new or i wanted to make and i honestly don`t know if any of my crafty friends would make anything from the book.
Save your money, order it from the library first before you part with your cash.

I found this book recently in a local charity shop and snapped up what I though was a bargain for a couple of quid. Well, it wasn't worth the effort of carrying it home. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Lizzie Burgess
